at a military level. this news comes just days after president obama got the iranians to the negotiating table over their nuclear program. it is a dangerous world out there. and i am glad tonight we have a president who knows how to use defense and diplomacy. in times like this we need a leader who can be tough without being a cowboy. >> he certainly has a chance to prove that. he has karzai and he have things developing with the iranians and the new challenge with the chinese which may be in fact the most dangerous of the three current activities of the and that doesn't count iraq, syria, libya, you name it. >> i'm glad we've got a cool hand, no reckless cowboys. >> we're going to discuss how cool that hand is in a minute. in the crossfire tonight, peter bienert and bill crystal. this was a very significant development. and frankly raises some serious questions. the chinese, as you know, have been claiming more and more and more expansive position. we have a map that shows our viewers, the chinese are currently claiming all the way out into the east china sea and into the south china sea. the
clinton. given that last week president obama might have preferred to bestow on mr. clinton the medal of freedom of opinion. >> i'm grateful, bill, as well, for the advice and counsel you've offered me on and off the golf course. and most importantly for your life-saving work around the world. >> by all accounts, 42 and 44 are not close. advisers can see the two men don't particularly like each other, and their relationship is purely transactional. as reported in the book "double down," following a round of golf in 2011, designed to break the ice and formalize clinton's role in the re-election effort, president obama told an aide, i like him in doses. clinton's recent comment that the president should allow americans to keep their substandard individual insurance plans was just the most recent example of the big dog running off the leash. in june clinton opined that president obama risked looking like a total fool with his cautious, consensus-seeking approach on syria. during the campaign, clinton praised mitt romney's sterling business career just as team obama was spending millions

election and this year dan wrote the book "collision 2012" obama versus romney and the future of elections in america. "collision 2012" provides incredibly detailed rich insights into both the election campaign and makes for fascinating reading. in 2011, dan received the white house correspondents association smith award for writing about the presidency and the national press club award for political analysis. dan is a regular panelist on tbs's "washington week" in "msnbc"'s daily rundown and a frequent guest on other public affairs shows. please join me in welcoming george, jeremy and dan. [applause] thank you. >> so we are going to do a little curly, moe and what's the other guys named? a routine up here, larry and hopefully quite soon we can turn it over to you and get it going both ways. the year 2008 came up in each of the introductions and it was then that i began to think about it look would try to understand what happened that year with these huge pillars of american economy and our society collapsing from auto may curse to tanks to the housing market, commercial investment banks a
it again. the new book is called "double down, game change 2012" and loaded with details how the obama campaign explained dumping joe biden and reed got the idea reid didn't pay income tax and more. the book doesn't come out until next week but jonathan martin has all the incite details and joins us now. it's fascinating on your reporting in this. how serious were they looking into having hillary clinton be the vice president? >> it was serious, not that it was intentionally polled and focused grouped. campaigns don't spend the money unless they are seriously exploring something. it was only known but about a half dozen of the top obama senior advisors, people like david axle rod and most notably the chief of staff william daily, then chief of staff who became close to joe biden. they are similar age, similar background. >> similar background. you talked to him? >> i talked hto him on the phon and he confirmed saying he thought it was his due diligence as chief of staff to explain the possibility of what she would mean for obama in 201. they concluded she wouldn't add a substantial eff
obama builds a legacy of peace. that's causing right wingers to choke. as commander in chief, the president has made it clear that sending troops into harm's way should always be a last resort. that tough diplomacy should always be our first option. for the first time in nearly a decade, iran will freeze. iran has agreed -- inspectors will do the monitoring. in return, the u.s. has agreed to provide iran with relief from sanctions. it could be a first true step towards disarming iran. an advance the president said was made through diplomacy, not tough talk. >> we cannot close the door or diplomacy. we cannot rule out peaceful solutions to the world's problems. we cannot commit ourselves to endless conflict. and tough talk and bluster may be the easy thing to do politically, but it's not the right thing for our security. it is not the right thing for our security. >> there's no doubt this is a complicated issue. some members of both parties have voiced concern. but this deal with iran gets to the heart of what type of leader we have in president obama. he won the nobel peace p
never miss an episode of "the five." see you on monday. >>> is the new and improved obama care website ready for its close-up? this is "special report." >>> good evening. i'm in for bret baier. it's rollout has led to the worst embarrassment of his presidency. tonight president obama is hoping the upgraded version of healthcare.gov really is ready for prime time this time. while the digital clock is ticki ticking, the president is trying once again to change the subject. >> reporter: determined not to have his agenda defined by the focus on his broke enhealth care website, president obama visited a group tryifasting to push the take up the legislation. republicans were accusing the administration of lowering the bar by saying an 80% enrollment success rate would be acceptable. >> i don't think there's any question that the administration, which promised to complete a marathon in essentially 60 days going from a failed website to a successful one, will now simply define success as going 50 feet or a 100 feet on that multimile marathon. >> reporter: another republican, michigan congressm
and glitches and shortening time to get on. >> democrats won't lose seats next year over obama care? >> i don't think you can tell what will happen next year. i will tell you this, democrats stand tall in support of affordable care act. >> friend of the show perry bacon is back. msnbc analyst and nency pelosi doesn't have a krystal ball but we do -- >> got to love the crystal ball jokes. >> we saw obama care making some folks get a little bit nervous. but obama care remains popular among democrats and as pointed out today, if dems help republicans obliterate it, it will be an enormous admission of governing incompetence and repud yags of poor progressive philosophy. so i'm wondering how many folks will be willing to give this up at this difficult moment of implementation. do you see more dems jumping ship in the future to perhaps where we get to veto proof number? >> i do not. the key thing to look forward to what actually happens in terms of the law. if the website is working for 30% of the people next june, then we have a different conversation of course. right now 39 democrats defected and
obama said he would do something no president has done since 1979, speak directly to the leaders of iran. it became a central issue of the campaign. >> it's hard to see what such a summit with president ahmadinejad would actually gain except an earful of anti-semitic rants and a worldwide audience for a man who denies one holocaust and talks before frenzied crowds about starting another! >> the conservative media machine jumped on the chance to characterize the young senator as weak. >> but we have a candidate who says we'll talk to the state sponsor of hamas, syria's al assad, and we'll speak to them without condition. >> but obama responded by reiterating his intent to do something that the u.s. had all but abandoned, practice diplomacy. >> if george bush and john mccain have a problem with direct diplomacy led by the president of the united states, then they can explain why they have a problem with john f. kennedy, because that's what he did with khrushchev, or ronald reagan, because that's what he did with gorbachev, or richard nixon, because that's what they did with mao. that's the
a distance. if you were president obama, what choice would you make? i'd like to hear your succinct and considered response. write me at billmoyers.com or on facebook. i promise to read every response. >>> let's turn now to another big story most of us know even less about than drones. tpp, the trans-pacific partnership. it's a trade agreement the united states is negotiating with australia, canada, japan and eight other countries in the pacific region. if you don't know about the tpp, and few do, it's because the powerful people behind it, including president obama, don't want you to know. the negotiations are shrouded in secrecy, and once they are completed, obama wants to rush the agreement through congress, fast-tracking, they call it, with our elected representatives given the choice only of voting it up or down. last year, over 130 members of congress asked the white house for more transparency about what's being negotiated and were essentially told to go fly a kite. you can be sure of this, however. a select group of corporate partners, companies like generax electric, goldma
. president obama offering a qualified apology of the american people, of the many promises that were broken when the marketplace opened. molly is live from washington with more. >> hi, greg. specifically the promise by the president that if you liked your health insurance plan, you can keep it under obama care. but republicans say more and more americans who are getting notices saying they're going to lose their health insurance plans and will have to pay more for new plans are feeling a, quote, sense of betrayal. >> the white house, the president isn't leveling with us. he's trying to cover his tracks, claiming he never really made these promises. no wonder a member of his own party called this a crisis of confidence. if the president's truly sorry about all this, he'll take steps to right this wrong. >> congressman young says the house will take up a bill next week that would allow people to keep their current health insurance plans. the president said this week that he was sorry that people are finding themselves in this situation, braced on assurances they got from me. he insists most o
enrichment all together. this one at least puts caps on every aspect of the program. president obama was pleased with the agreement. >> for the first time in nearly a decade, we have halted the iranian nuclear program. he is committed to halts certain levels of enrichment and neutralizing part of it's stockpile. it cannot use his centrifuges for enrichings urainium. there will now be inspections every single day. they can no longer enlich to 20%. and they cannot stockpile. the explicit of iron's right was a big sticking point. the two sides see what the agreement says about that quite differently. >> the right no nuclear technology for peaceful purposes, including inrichment is an inalienable right. what is required for other countries to recognize and respect the implementation of this right. >> this first step does not say that iran has a right to enrichment. no matter what interpretive comments are made it's not in this community, there is no right to enrich, and this document does not do that. >> what it does if they stick to it is double what is called the break out time. if ira
'mbill owe ri. as you know, i am a simple man. last night senator kerry and president obama told the world that a compromise had been reached with iran over nuclear weapons. immediately there was controversy. we must be skeptical here. first of all, there are folks that don't care if iran gives up its nukes. on the opposite side, there are americans who will oppose anything president obama does. therefore, they will object to the deal with iran on that basis. so let's put those two groups aside for a moment. there are two key things in place. first, the agreement slows down but does not stop iran's development of nuclear weapons. that's why the israelis are so angry. they want iran's nuclear program to stop enrich uranium, the uranium they already has destroyed. but under this deal, it's not going to happen. president obama says this is just the first part of the deal. more stringent controls will be brought after six months. the anti-obama forces don't believe that will happen. on the other hand, many believe it's good, that talking with them is better than shooting at them. and though so
our work cut out for us. we need to send barack obama back to chicago. i would like to send him back to kenya. [ applause ] >> that was at a north texas tea party event about two months before mitt romney lost the presidential election and of course it was long after president obama had produced his birth certificate showing that unlike either raphael cruz, sr., or junior, he was actually born in the united states. joining me now are msnbc political analyst steve schmidt, senior adviser on the mccain '08 campaign and joy reid, nbc contributor. this latest video about him wanting to send president obama as he puts it back to kenya was pulled out today. it's been around. they highlighted it. and then the senator put out a statement saying he doesn't -- his father doesn't speak for him. >> it's so precious when the guy whose son was born in canada does birther jokes. that's adorable. it highlights without the media officially there kind of the way conservatives are talking amongst themselves. and that really is the problem. the problem is even with the 47% video, this was mitt romney be
states to apologize to afghanistan, but will the obama administration find some other way to say "sorry." >>> and it's their first meeting since bill clinton's recent swipe at bobama care. so how much does the president need the former president? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we'll get to that congressman sentencing here in washington after a cocaine bust in just a second or two. >>> but first, we've got some breaking news coming into "the situation room." these are live pictures from the orlando international airport, where a jetblue flight bound for boston has just made an emergency landing after an evacuation slide deployed in-flight. the plane landed safely. no injuries are reported. we're getting more information. as soon as we do, we'll share it with you, but that story just coming in, a jetblue flight from orlando to boston. >>> back here in washington, a first-term congressman may have been lucky to avoid a jail term. republican trey radel of florida, today, pleaded guilty to cocaine possession and was given probation. the lawmaker who's called himself, a
suspects they say were carrying handguns. >>> to obama care now and the website that is at least for the moment back up and running. healthcare.gov shut down last night so the feds could fix a number of problems that continue to plague it since going online on october 1st. meanwhile, embattled health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius will go before the senate finance committee next week when she's expected to answer more questions about this disastrous rollout. peter has more on that from washington. great to see you, peter. >> good to see you, too, jamie. there's a brand new banner on the home page of healthcare.gov announcing daily outages from 1:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. eastern, so technical improvements can be made. the outages are going to impact the online application process, but other parts of the site will remain online throughout. earlier this week, president obama visited boston to compare the affordable care act rollout to the roll out of mitt romney' health care plan in massachusetts. however, mitt romney said in the last hour or so, those comparisons are no
to be able to pursue a comprehensive agreement that would finish the work that president obama begain on the very first day in office. and that is to ensure that iran does not obtain a nuclear weapon. president obama worked intensively, and his administration worked intensively before i came in, when i was in the congress, and voted for sanctions. the president worked in order to put in place a significant sanctions regime. anunprecedented regime. and he worked with countries around the world in order to ensure broad participation and support for the sanctions. that has been essential to the success of these sanctions. and we believe that it is the sanctions that have brought us to this negotiation, and ultimately to the more significant negotiation to follow for a comprehensive agreement. make no mistakes, and i ask you, don't interpret that the sanctions were annd unto themselves. they weren't. the goal of the sanctions was always to have a negotiation. and that is precisely what is now taking place, and that negotiation's goal is to secure a strong and verifiable agreement that gua
are interesting. obama retreats on health rules. health law shakes presidency. and the president admitted what everyone in america already knew. obamacare is a total and unmitigated disaster. among those who urged the president to cave, bill clinton. >> the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got. >> i said it would do everything we can to fix this problem and today i am offering an idea that will help to it. >> when you look at obamacare i do not think there is a way to fix it. >> house speaker john boehner in a lengthy news conference. the president said he will try to regain the trust of the american people. he has a very tall mountain to climb. the latest poll, 54% of the american people disapprove of his job performance. gallup, 52%. of theregain the trust american people? >> time will tell. i do not know. , incredibly partial important commodity for president. once that trust is compromised, it is tough to reclaim it. he can only do it by leveling and taking full responsibility and accountability for this program.
on his way out of the country. >>> another day, another deadline for the obama administration and its new health care program. the president's team says after the website's disastrous rollout two months ago, today's the day it's supposed to work smoothly for the vast majority of users. this is a live look now at healthcare.gov. technicians took it down overnight, about 11 hours, for maintenance. but it is back up now. c cnn's tory dunnan is live now. we're hours away from the deadline. it appears things may be working better with the website. is all well in washington, or are they preparing to fix this thing? >> reporter: wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall? >> no. >> reporter: but in all seriousness, the latest is that the administration is on track to meet this self-imposed deadline, telling us that the site was shut down overnight for fixes, as well as updates. of course, we now know it's up and running. and here's what the goal will be in the next hours for this weekend. according to the white house, 50,000 people should be able to be on the site at the same time. we're told if
of money as an insurer, obama care will pay you on the back side of it. we found out this weekend that's in there. and the other one is now they're talking about, the obama administration's talking about going around the website now. now, you can probably go at some point directly to the insurers. you and i talked about in the green room -- >> that's what we said all along. >> is that what we've been saying? >> what are you talking about? you said 5 million now. the upside of more people losing their health insurance is much lower than the number who are going to get health insurance. >> incorrect. >> not according to congressional budget office. in the end, the numbers are -- >> oh, million, come on -- >> so risk corridor? only in washington can they come up with language like this. >> sounds like a stallone movie. >> the government gets you coming and going. if you are a citizen and you sign up, you probably will qualify for a subsidy. if you are a business and you're having a hard time meeting those demand, you also can get money from the government. at this point, isn't the governm

's always a bull market "m" i'm jim cramer. i will see you tomorrow. >> president obama hits back at the criticism that he is getting from all sides on the iran nuclear deal. he says the critics, quote are, just talking tough. but what if they're telling the truth? we're going to look at the political, diplomatic and financial repercussions of this agreement. and what will israel do in response? by making this deal, the white house has brought the deal between the white house and jerusalem to an all-time low. will israel feel forced to defy the u.s. and strike iran on its own? and the one thing this deal is doing, it's getting the obama health care failure off the front pages, at least for now. but new revelations about the disastrous healthcare.gov are coming to life this evening and they do not bode well for the future of the entire program. all the stories and more on the "kudlow report" starting right now. >>> good evening. i'm michelle caruso-cabrera in tonight for larry kudlow, and this is "the kudlow report." despite continued white house optimism tonight for the new deal t
. >>> was the obama campaign considering replacing joe biden with hillary clinton on the 2012 ticket? it appears so. in the new book "double down" it's said obama's chief of staff at the time was actively pushing the idea. in the end the research showed it didn't move the polls enough to justify the move. >>> also in that book mitt romney seriously considered chris christie for vice president. the new jersey governor was apparently ruled out because of unanswered questions about his background and, quote, health concerns. >>> there's also new data on the number of people who signed up for obama care on day one. are these numbers a sign of trouble or what was expected? we'll talk about it and what it means for the white house as well as the uninsured and the fight against the rollout with the republican national committee chair, reince priebus, next. when you vote for flo, we'll have discounts. ice-cream discounts. multi-cookie discounts. pizza loyalty discounts!

on the security pact with the u.s. hamid karzai told the group that barack obama sent him a letter assuring him the security pact is in afghanistan's interests and said u.s. troops will enter afghan homes only in exceptional circumstances. >> in pakistan a suspected u.s. drone hits a religious school in the north-west of the country. six were killed. the u.s. says the school is controlled by the haqqani group, linked to the taliban. secretary of state john kerry says counter talks offer the best chance in a decade on iran's nuclear program. six world powers will continue talks on tuesday. >> back in geneva, less than two weeks after the last talks stalled. the e.u. official in charge of foreign affairs, catherine ashton - an interim deal on iran's program seemed close. pressures, constraints on both sides have been growing since they were last here. in tehran, in a tell voiced address the man in charge supports the talks. there are red lines he will not allow negotiators to cross. >> translation: i insist that the rights of the nation be preserved, including the nuclear rights. >> last time aro
by president obama, suddenly it is a government takeover of health care by their definition and that's about the worst you can do. look, the affordable care is not perfect. i could not name a piece of legislation that would never pass in 200 years that's perfect. the founding fathers set up a first tee with the imperfections. it's called working together to solve problems. if there's a thick, thin me to be ironed out, glitches like fixing the website. obviously the website should work. the affordable care act as i described this afternoon is so much more than a website. it means so much more to millions of people. i'm ready. all of my colleagues on my side of the aisle are ready, willing and able to hammer out some of those problems that crop up. what we are not willing to do was repeal it and go backwards.

it is to distract from obama care, including republicans in the senate, which is weird and factually wrong or haven't offered evidence for that rather serious charge. then there's something more substantive we're hearing from republicans and democrats alike, the bad cop caucus of members of congress who say whatever this is, we're going to be here with a tough end game in six months. >> that's absolutely right, ari. really the way to look at this is that the president and administration on this deal on a very short leash with congress. you have internationalists that like this idea and view that through the prix of what this means historically. if you look at the relationship between the u.s. and iran, it's been quite tu multiuous for the last 30 years or so. if they if it goes well, it will be the single greatest achievement of the obama presidency. we always knew republicans would look at this deal and be skeptical of it mainly because most of them are ar dent supporters of israel and have close ties with israeli security and want that to continue. what's interesting with chuck schumer and bob me
the obama care war room reveal administration concerns about more problems beyond a broken website. >>> americans on edge after the latest high profile shooting incident. a gunman opening fire in a crowded shopping mall. is this the new normal? >>> and newt gingrich may be full of praise for chris christie on this election day but wait until you hear what christie had to say about gingrich. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin this hour with breaking news, just coming into "the situation room" about serious chemical weapons. after the threat of a u.s. military strike this summer, the regime of bashar al assad had apparently been cooperating with international teams working to destroy the country's stockpile of chemical weapons, but now, there are some disturbing new developments. let's go straight to our pentagon correspondent, barbara starr. barbara, you're picking up word of new classified intelligence that syria might not necessarily be giving up its chemical weapons. what are you learning? >> reporter: wolf, there is in fact, according to several u.s.

book "bullies" you write president obama was elected at least in part because he was black. it was a positive many americans believe that if they needed to elect the first black president to move beyond issues of race once and for all. instead they got a champion bully masquerading as a racial unifier. what do you mean? >> guest: president obama came into office on this great wave of american approval but said he's going to unify the country along racial lines. instead what happened is that the president has really suggested in the multiple ways he's not only the continuation of american racism, but that is one of the most serious problems still facing the country. we see it manifest in everything from the george zimmerman trial to focus on voter id card to paint voter id as a racist thing and caution voter fraud. the question on the motivation of the american people at least his opponents is something president obama likes to do on a frequent basis and it pays tremendous dividends and the only sector of the racial population that showed up in larger numbers than the previo
and snow. >> president obama says he's optimistic about the agreement on iran's nuclear program and hopes the deal will dismannedle the history of mistrust between iran and the u.s. >> i firmly believe in what president kennedy said - never let us negotiate out of fear, never let us fear to negotiate. i believe that. this diplomacy, backed by unprecedented sanctions on iran brought us the progress achieved this weekend. >> critics in congress says it gives iran too much lee way. it doesn't forbid the country enriching uranium. >> president obama's secretary of state john kerry and other officials describe it as a step towards the ultimate goal, ensuring that rain can never develop a nuclear weapon. there are sanctions in place, an easing of the sanctions to last six months. there are many in congress and elsewhere saying the deal is not enough. many are pushing for more sanction, not fewer sanctions on iran. they sea iran will play the game, parallels are drawn to north korea, coming to the table, getting what they want and going back to previous behaviour. >> ben rhodes is the deputy nat
. >> life support as they scramble to repair healthcare.gov by the end of the month deadline. can the obama administration recover from the damage already inflicted by the rough rollout? >> whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it's rotting it away. >> double down. they changed the game with political tell-all that went behind the scenes with 2008 election. mark halperin back with latest insider scoop that's already shaking up the political landscape. they will noin me to share some of the most revealing moments of the 2012 white house including fallout inside team obama after this first debate performance rocked the campaign on its heals. >> take it and go to congress, fight for it. >> that's what we've done. made some adjustments and we're putting it before -- >> you've been president four years. you've been president four years. >> good monday to you. hope you had a great weekend. i'm kristen welker in for andrea mitchell. a billion dollar presidential cam
. right now, a republican governor. president obama carried this state twice. democrats want a democratic victory tonight to try to make the case. virginia is shifting from a one-time red state, becoming a blue state. fascinating issues at play in this race. the very same issues that will be in play next year in the midterm elections and likely in the 2016 presidential campaign as well. the government shutdown, the tactics of the tea party and the president's health care plan. the it's one thing to watch tonight in virginia. do a majority of the voters oppose obama care? do they have disagreements with the president's health care plan and at the same time, do they elect a democratic governor? do they reject a republican candidate who's among the first attorneys general to challenge it. if that happens, watch for republicans to have a painful lesson about whether their candidate was too far to the right, especially in a state shifting more to a moderate purple state. >> right and we mentioned 2016. mcauliffe very close to the clintons, could be seen as perhaps what does it mean for the pos
